Our friend Ric Emery is in a battle for his life. Ric has contracted mylelofibrosis and must undergo a stem cell transplant. This intensive treatment will require a month long hospitalization and leave his immune system compromised. Following the hospitalization, Ric must remain in isolation for an extended period and will be unable to return to work for months. As many of us who have dealt with Cancer either personally or through family members know too well, life does not pause while the patient fights through treatment. Expenses and obligations must still be met and for Ric, who is the sole provider and Parent for his Grandchildren Jordan and Jacob, those expenses are signifigant. Ric has never flinched at the many challenges Life has presented him. He is a skilled craftsman who has worked hard to provide a stable and loving home for his family. But his treatment will preempt his ability to earn a living for nearly a year and that's where we, as his Friends, come in. This can be a lonely road but let's show Ric he is far from alone. Please respond to this urgent need and contribute to support Ric. Show him we "have his back". You know he would have ours.
